During your teenage years, you may have been offered cosmetic dental work and refused, due to being worried about having heavy, metal braces put in and the impact on your social life. As an adult, you may already regret that decision and might be worried that you are too old for any kind of cosmetic dentistry, however that would be a misconception.
The good news is that no matter what your age, no one is too old to improve their teeth and with Invisalign in Clapham, we can help you get that perfect smile.
What is Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces that pull your teeth into position, Invisalign uses clear and thin mouthguards to gently push your teeth into the desired place over time. They are custom-made to fit over your teeth and designed to softly move your teeth, minimising discomfort.
Invisalign is best suited for customers who have mild or moderate levels of misalignment, so may not be suitable for everyone.
However, we have many different types of Invisalign, specifically designed for different levels of realignment issues. For example, if you have less complex alignment problems, you may be fitted with Invisalign Lite.
Is it expensive?
Invisalign in Clapham has the added advantage of being broken down into monthly payments, so you can spread the cost.
The initial consultation you will receive with one of our dentists is totally free. During this initial consultation, we will scan your teeth and plan the best course of treatment for you.
Other benefits of Invisalign
Even with all these benefits, there are more to consider when choosing to undertake Invisalign treatment.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign allows you to consume any food you wish without having to worry about damaging your braces.
Along with straightening your teeth, Invisalign braces also correct and strengthen your bite. Feel free to bite into that well-done steak without worrying about pieces getting stuck between your teeth!
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign actively promotes long-term oral health too. When wearing traditional braces, the traditional design is prone to allowing plaque and deposits to build up. This can not only damage your teeth, but can also be bad news for your gums. Gum disease may develop due to misaligned or overcrowded teeth and having braces with a problematic design will not reduce this issue.
Invisalign, due to the simplicity and flexibility of the design is easier to move your brush around and due to its transparent appearance, allows you to identify potential problem areas quicker. Indeed, even the fitted version of the design is easier to navigate around and obviously, if you have a removable type, then the benefits compared to fitted metal braces are obvious.
Invisalign in Clapham offers an affordable, advanced solution to straightening your teeth, without compromising on appearance or ease of usage.
